Is business booming in Bradford?
Bradford was once at the very heart of the Industrial Revolution and heavily involved with the textile trade. Fast forward to modern day Britain and not only is Bradford reinventing itself as a tourist destination, business is booming.
The new Bradford moves away from textiles and has diversified. Many financial organisations now call the city home, including Santander and Provident Financial. Other notable companies include Hallmark Cards, Seabrook Potato Crisps and supermarket chain Morrisons. The city is also undergoing a massive £35 million regeneration, enabling existing businesses to grow, whilst attracting new companies to the area.
Why do tourists visit Bradford?
Many tourists visit the city of Bradford to enjoy the rich architecture. The oldest building in the city is the cathedral, which dates back to medieval times. There are also plenty of Victorian buildings, including the former Wool Exchange and City Hall.
